We are creating true partnerships and delivering exceptional results in partnership with Local Government.
Carillion has a long history of working in partnership with the public sector and bringing lasting benefits to communities.
In the fast-moving world of local government, we’re both progressive and proactive. We understand that we need to deliver value for money within today’s tighter budgetary constraints.
We can help reduce costs and improve service efficiency, providing better tangible social, economic and sustainable outcomes for local communities.
Providing trusted facilities management to the public sector
Our facilities management capabilities are widely used across the public sector.
In healthcare, we are a leading provider to the National Health Service. Some of the country’s largest and most prestigious NHS Trusts rely on us to deliver services critical to the safe care of over three million patients each year.
In the education sector, we have designed and built 150 schools, many as Public Private Partnership projects. We provide facilities management to 875 schools, clean more than 468,000m2 of school accommodation across 245 schools and provide mechanical, electrical and fabric maintenance services in 683 schools.
We also provide a range of facilities management services to 50 prisons as well as to local government properties.
We design, build, maintain and manage key highways infrastructure, in conditions ranging from the freezing depths of winter in Alberta, Canada, to the dazzling heat of Qatar.
In the UK, we manage the Smart Motorways that actively control traffic flow. We work with local and national governments to keep people moving safely and connect communities, with an absolute focus on health, safety and quality.
We believe that thriving communities boost economic prosperity and contribute positively to society.
We are at the heart of many local communities where we live and work. We are committed to improving quality of life and providing much-needed employment and training through our work, across not just our construction capability, but all areas of our business.
We are the largest apprentice trainer and employer in our sector. In 2014 we committed to creating more than 5,000 apprenticeships by 2019. At any one time, around 2,000 students are in training as part of our apprenticeship programme across our 13 centres in the UK.
Our track record in construction is extensive. Recent major projects include the £400m Battersea Power Station Phase 1 redevelopment, the £335m Royal Liverpool University Hospital, the award-winning Library of Birmingham and the Anfield Stadium expansion.
Local government sees many benefits from working with Carillion, including:
- The potential for significantly lower costs, which we take responsibility for delivering
- Robust, consistently delivered, service standards that support strategic objectives.
- Tangible contributions to environmental sustainability and to thriving communities.
